is there a difference between a 'child size" guitar and a little martin?

I want to get a little martin. its portable. its small and cute. But I have a "child size" Mark II from when I was little and it was uncomfurable and wasnt good at playing.
Is there a difference?
I dont know if i was holding the guitar right though.
or should I get a full size? I would prefer a little (: I wil be buying online mostlikely
Omg mikey. Guitars cost money. I am not exactly a rich person. I want to be 100% certain.
It is cute. I have already googled and found that it sounds very good.

Quality is the main difference. The dimensions of a Little Martin are about the same as a child's guitar, but it's built a lot better built. Playability is excellent, but (as I discussed in your earlier question) the sound suffers from the shallow body. The Little Martin is a primarily a travel guitar.

I recently bought a Baby Taylor BT-2 to use as a travel guitar. This is very similar in size to the Little Martin. I absolutely love playing this guitar, it's cute and fun to play. It's even the guitar I grab around the house when I just want to work something out. Having said that, it simply doesn't have the full tone of a larger bodied guitar. Much as I like it, if I could only own one guitar, it wouldn't be this one. I think you'll find this to be true of the Little Martin too.

Kayley, I think you'd be happier with a full scale "small bodied" guitar like the Yamaha FS700s or FS720s.

These guitars will give you much better tone than the Little Martin and they aren't much bigger.

You might also consider a Taylor GS Mini:
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Taylor-GS-Mini-Acoustic-Guitar-107442063-i2291721.gc It's still a 3/4 scale guitar like the Little Martin, but with a deeper body to give it better tone and bass response. It's a little more expensive, but worth the extra money.

You said you "want to be 100% certain". There's only one way. I urge you to try some of these guitars out. Buying online isn't a good idea...especially for beginners. You will find that local shops can meet or beat internet prices, and you have the advantage of trying the guitar before buying. When you compare other guitars side-by-side with the Little Martin you'll be able to see and hear the difference.
